Im loving it, Tony Avent from Plant Delights is an alumni of NCSU so he lets our teacher take cuttings and pictures and such from his gardens. Every once in blue moon we have material from his garden we are using in class, then we also have the JC Raulston Arboretum. Both are amazing as far as amount of material and diversity... they have things you dont see anywhere else - my favorite has been the dwarf loblolly pines, but there are so many cool plants :-). We have other gardens around which are also spectacular but the arboretum is maintained specifically for research and education for NCSU students, I feel very fortunate. The professors are very approachable and friendly but have lots of experience and knowledge to share, plus they love teaching. I got very lucky since I went back to school for Chemistry and sort of randomly decided to take horticulture classes as well.
Well, it works!! I have a small leaf on mine and several others have leaves as well cutting were about 1/4" diameter and about 1/2" or so - they fit nicely into four cell packs, sparsely watered, as they prefer drier conditions.
GardeninNC... That great news. Did you put them under a mist system, or just check the pots for watering as needed? Don't ya just love the warm fuzzy feeling when your seeds and cuttings all finally take and start growing?
They we not in a mist bed, but high humidity in the greenhouse they were in - they supposedly like it dry, so not too much water on them. We have done so many cool plants this year! Im especially enjoying a Serrisa foetida (I think thats right) - very nice foliage and flowers!
